The Deshpande Symposium is a gathering of like-minded practitioners focused on accelerating innovation and entrepreneurship across the college and university environment. The Symposium provides a venue for attendees to learn from each others' experiences; to gain wider exposure for their ideas, successes and start-ups; and to collaborate on activities that increase innovation and entrepreneurship in their academic communities.

The deadline for Panel Presentation submissions is February 15. The Panel Presentations are a great opportunity to share your campus efforts with Innovation and Entrepreneurship thought leaders from across North America. We have limited space in the program for panel presenters, so please submit your proposal ASAP.

Additionally, the deadline to submit nominations for the 2017 Deshpande Symposium awards is April 4.
